The Tomten lives deep in the Swedish forest and its world is brought to life by Astrid Lindgren in her marvellous picture books. The tales of the Tomten in the freezing winter are very atmospheric. This is the first year I have not been able to read it out loud. I am learning, and so are we all, about not being able to do what we always expected. A family doing its best, supported by kind people. Maybe one day you will see the Tomten.
